Rejoice 90s Kids: MTV Is Rebooting Total Request Live!

If you grew up in the 90s, odds are the first thing you did after getting home from school was flipping on the TV to watch TRL.

The daily countdown show featured the 10 most requested songs of the day, and was a big hit for MTV between 1998 and 2008. It defined an era of popular music, making stars out of bands like the Backstreet Boys.

While there's no word on whether Carson Daly will be returning, MTV has some very exciting changes planned for the new show.


The format of the show will stay the same - it's already perfectly designed for our digitally connected world - and the show will be taped in a revamped version of the iconic Times Square studio.

The show might even be live this time. Yes, in case you didn't know, the original Total Request Live was actually pre-taped.

The only thing that could make this announcement better is if classic guest hosts like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera came back.


Along with TRL, MTV plans to revive other popular shows including Fear Factor, Parental Control and My Super Sweet 16.

The only thing that's missing now is a bag of pizza chips!
